It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Tried the turbo butt yesterday, fantastic! no pics:(

    Sorry I didn't take pics but this was definitely quick and easy!

    started with a 6# boston butt. 350* indirect with a drip pan full of water. goal was to cook until 165IT and it only took maybe 3 hours or so. Then I foiled to 195IT and that only took another hour. Then I FTC'd for about 3 hours. When we finally gave in, opened the cooler, and unwrapped, it was super moist and soft. Used the meat claws to shred it and the fam loved it! Super quick and easy (thanks to the Maverick).

    Definitely going turbo on butts and ribs from now on! All about the temp, not the time!

  • first time cooking burgers on the bge

    last night I cooked burgers on the egg for the first time. They were EXCELLENT. Here's what I did: I was going to make myself a patty melt so I put the patty in a ziplock bag and rolled super thin and then decided to do them all that way. The rest of the family were going to just make burgers. Direct heat raised by bricks at 550* for 3 minutes per side. Best tasting burger(s) I believe I've ever had. I may roll em thin every time from now on! BTW my patty melt, I buttered two slices of bread added onions, cheese, and pickles and toasted on the stove. SUPER GOOD
  • another newbie egg owner!!!

    ok, after years of wanting one, today I am the proud new owner of a large green egg. I picked it up from the dealer already assembled and when I get home from work the first smoke will take place. The whole family is excited and needless to say, I am too!
